Ho Chi Minh Food Tour at Night
6 pm-10 pm Every Night
Our Most Popular Ho Chi Minh Food Tour! This Menu is designed to please large mixed groups of people from any age range and fitness level who want to taste delicious Vietnamese food without feeling too challenged. Also perfect for small groups/families, couples, and solo travelers.
The menu is a mix of unique only-in-Ho Chi Minh dishes and a couple of classics built with the idea that this tour will be delicious and fun for everyone. The seating on the tour is comfortable, the delicious food isn’t challenging, and the restaurant atmosphere is not street food focused.
Caters to Allergies and Vegetarians?
Yes, this Saigon Food Tour menu was built to cater to food allergies and vegetarians in the back of our minds. We can change just a few things so that guests can still have the same experience as everyone else without meat or whatever food they may be allergic to.
Who is this Tour for?
Everybody! We created this experience to be a comfortable but unique experience that is suitable for all ages and types of travelers. The seating is comfortable enough at all of the restaurants featured on the tour and the vibe is completely relaxed and fun.
Taste of Vietnam Highlights
The Taste of Vietnam Saigon, food tour menu, is special and showcases many dishes you haven’t heard of. In two of the locations on the tour, we even had the chance to cook a bit with our customers.
Big Eats & Small Seats
Afternoon Ho Chi Minh City Street Food Tour
1 pm-5 pm Every Afternoon
A street food tour catered to those who want to feel like Anthony Bourdain in Ho Chi Minh, immersing themselves into tiny and unique locations for local cuisine that will blow your socks off.
The menu features what we would consider more classic or popular street foods from Vietnam. The focus is on deliciousness, but we aren’t worried about comfort, hence the “small seats” in the name. This tour isn’t for everyone; if you feel uncomfortable spending 20-30 minutes at a time in super small chairs, this would not be the best experience for you.
Caters to Allergies and Vegetarians?
Unfortunately, catering to vegetarians or allergies on this tour is not possible. The street food vendors only offer one dish, and we can’t provide what we think would be an acceptable and delicious substitute for guests with food restrictions.
Who is this tour for?
The name of the tour says it all: Big Eats Small Seats. We will be getting extremely local with our street food on this tour, which means it would be best for customers who feel comfortable in really small stools. This is the “Anthony Bourdain” type experience for those foodies who really want to get into the mix of it in Saigon. If that doesn’t sound nice to you, I recommend the Taste of Vietnam Tour.
This is a local afternoon Saigon food tour, which means the traffic is much easier during the time of the day to navigate. We can cover a ton of ground in a short amount of time, which gives a better insight into the layout of Ho Chi Minh City. This tour features some of our favorite street food vendors, like our Bun Thit Nuong lady, whom we have known for many years and an absolute treat of a woman. We also offer delicious seafood from one of the best food stops in all of district 10!
A Chef’s Tour
Private Night Ho Chi Minh City Food Tasting
5 pm – 10 pm (Book in Advance)
This is a private street food-focused tour with an ad-hoc menu using all of our local food knowledge to build a tasting menu that fits you. This tour is fast-paced and meant to show off as much food as possible in a 5-hour time frame.
Our Chef Tour Menu is always different and based on our customer’s experience with Vietnamese food and anything they might be looking to try while they are in Saigon. We do our very best to search out what we think you would enjoy during the night and give you an experience catered just for you.
cater to vegetarians or food allergies?
Unfortunately, catering to vegetarians for this experience would be extremely tricky. The street food vendors only offer one dish and it isn’t possible for us to provide what we think would be an acceptable and delicious substitute for guests with food restrictions.
Who is this Tour For?
This tour is for extreme foodies that want something private and a bit more in-depth. We will cover everything from street food to small local eateries during this tour if you want. The menu and route are completely made up as we go along and catered to the customers on the tour. Buyer beware, we will completely stuff you to the gills on this tour trying to show you all of the food in Saigon!
The Chef’s Tour is the exact tour that I would want for myself when traveling to a new city for a short period of time. We are willing to show off whatever we think you might enjoy, whether that is a menu of classic Vietnamese dishes or being challenged with unique flavors you might not love but are excited to try! With the extra hour on this tour as well, we have a chance to take a bit more time to eat at some places I might not get to on a more time-restricted tour.

Which Saigon FOOD TOUR is Right for You?
Ho Chi Minh City is unique because we have two styles of food tour around the city.
The first and most popular option is the Motorbike Food Tour.
Zipping in the traffic of Ho Chi Minh City with a local guide is a thrill. Saigon unfolds and opens up as local guides teach you about culture and sights while cruising on the motorbike.
The other option is a walking food tour, which can compensate for its lack of thrill with patience and depth while we explore the city on foot.
If you are nervous about being on a motorbike or want something more budget-friendly, this is a great option to learn more and eat some great Vietnamese food.
Ho Chi minh Food Tours by Motorbike
All of our Motorbike Food Tours have similar aspects: We provide pick up and drop off in the city center. Our team is all English Speaking Driver Guides who are highly trained in safety and customer service.
A dedicated Support Team helps our tours run smoothly like butter. Digital Photos of your Tour are sent to you within 24 hours after your tour. One of the most important parts of the tour is that all Food and Drink are Included in the Price. Every tour has accident insurance coverage.
With advance notice, we can easily accommodate Vegetarians and Food Allergies on our food tours. Our tours are suitable for the whole family, and we offer special pricing for children 7 and under riding with their parents and also a discount for kids 7-12 years old.
The difference between our Ho Chi Minh Food Tours is going to be Menu and style. So take a look at each sample menu to see what type of menu and setting you prefer for your trip.
If you are looking for a Street Food focused tour our Big Eats & Small Seats and Chef’s Tour will be your best option. If you are looking to try some Tasty Vietnamese Food in a fun comfortable setting then our Taste of Vietnam Night Food Tour will be right up your alley.

Walking Saigon Food Tour
A Walking Food Tour in Ho Chi Minh City is a great way to get a feel for the vibe of Saigon while tasting its culinary delights and that’s why we created our Saigon Street Food Stroll!
With a great route and excellent guide, you can participate in a walking food tour that can show off the history, culture, and street food.
Our English Speaking Guides will take you through an interesting cultural perspective with discussions about modern society and the Saigonese way of life. Take a breath of the old history of Ho Chi Minh City as we point out and discuss the city layout, design, and architecture along the way. Of course, the main focus of our tour will be to show off delicious Vietnamese cuisine as we journey to some of the best delights available along the way.
A bit different from other walking tours, we will not be using any taxi cabs to get from place to place, we have designed an excellent route that will be at a friendly pace suitable for most anyone. We will meet up at a designated location with the rest of the group before we begin our journey through the city. During the tour, all food and drinks are included and we will also capture digital photos during the trip that we send the next day via email.
In case of rain, our support crew is prepared with rain ponchos and shoe protectors to keep you and your feet dry!
Saigon Street Food Stroll
NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME
Explore the heart of Ho Chi Minh City’s District 3 in a walking food tour that will leave you happy, full, and filled with a new appreciation for Saigon’s history and culture. Known as one of the “Top Neighborhoods in the World to Live”. We will take a 4km walk eating delicious Vietnamese food while learning more about Saigon’s French Architecture, Modern Society, and the Unique Culture that gives Saigon its a special feeling. Our food on this tour is great for beginners looking to explore a safe and delicious way to taste the best of Ho Chi Minh Cities’ tasty delicacies. This walk is medium-level intensity as some of the sidewalks can be uneven or sometimes filled with traffic during rush hour.
The menu is a mix of unique only-in-Saigon dishes and a couple of classics built with the idea that this tour will be delicious and fun for everyone. The seating on the tour is comfortable, the food while delicious isn’t challenging, and the restaurant atmosphere is not street food focused.
This Tour Caters to Allergies and Vegetarians
This menu was built with catering to food allergies and vegetarians in the back of our minds. We are able to change just a few things so that guests can still have the same experience as everyone else without meat or whatever food they may be allergic to.
Alcohol(beer) is Included
Most of our guests are on vacation and I absolutely love to encourage having a few drinks on the tour if you would like. When else will you have a designated driver taking your around while you drink and eat?
Relaxed, EAsy, and Fun Vibe
